Jennifer Love Hewitt is the newest person rumored to be snagging an up-for-grabs judging spot on the 'X Factor' panel.

What, you don't remember her illustrious music career? (We heard she's really big in Japan.)

A source told Us Weekly that show creator Simon Cowell is keen on adding the lovely and vajazzled 'Client List' actress to the panel, what with her having that one song that made it all the way to No. 25 on the charts back in 2002 and all.

Other seemingly better-suited contenders for the Seats o' Judgement include country superstar Reba McEntire and former Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland (who was a judge in 2011 on the UK version of the 'X Factor').

A show rep refused to confirm anything, saying it's all "pure speculation" at this point.

Meanwhile, Mario Lopez is now back to hosting alone as he proved that anything Khloe Kardashian can do, he can do better -- even if her mother didn't think so.
